Comments: Beatriz Caitana and Pedro Hespanha (CES)


Based on the results of the doctoral research on the intermediation role of Cape Verdean Solidarity Economy organisations in micro-credit and alternative financing, this seminar proposes to discuss Solidarity Economy financing systems, deepening the distinction between complementary and alternative financing and presenting the historical framework of the latter. In addition, the theme of sustainability in Solidarity Economy will be addressed, emphasising the distinction between sustainable development from the macro perspective and the concept of sustainability from the micro perspective
